Frequency asked questions

Often dermal fillers can create unwanted aesthetic effects or complications. Thankfully, hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers can be reversed or dissolved by injecting the enzyme hyaluronidase into the previously injected filler. This enzyme catalyses the breakdown of hyaluronic acid. It is important to understand that hyaluronidase only removes filler and does not permanently affect your natural hyaluronic acid.

Before commencing treatment, a comprehensive complimentary consultation is required with a Skin Rejuvenate Cosmetic Injector to discuss your concerns, goals and expectations. With this information, a personalised treatment plan. The dissolving treatment itself will usually a quick process with minimal discomfort by injecting the hyaluronidase into the area where the unwanted filler is located and may gently massage the injection site to ensure even distribution.

Avoid vigorous physical activity or any large intakes of alcohol for 24 hours as this increases the risk of bruising. Ibuprofen, Aspirin and Vitamin E should not be taken one week before the treatment. After booking and confirming your treatment, please make sure to complete the requested forms. On the day of your treatment, arrive with clean, makeup-free skin. Please be on time, or even a bit early, if you want to really impress us.

After receiving Dermal Filler Dissolving, Your Skin Rejuvenate Cosmetic Injector will provide you with full aftercare instructions. Post-treatment, some patients may experience bruising and swelling for a few days. For patients who have been overfilled for an extended period and then dissolved, the post-hyaluronidase appearance may show more pronounced changes in skin texture, leading to wrinkles, deflation, or laxity. These effects are more noticeable with longer-standing fillers.

For the best results and to minimise potential side effects, please follow these guidelines:

  • Use a cold compress to alleviate discomfort, swelling, or bruising.
  • Refrain from applying makeup to the treated area for at least 24 hours.
  • Avoid lying down or engaging in intense physical exercise for the first 24 hours post-treatment.
  • Do not schedule any facial treatments such as lasers or peels for at least two weeks post-treatment.
  • Refrain from touching the injected area to reduce the risk of infection.

One or two hyaluronidase treatments are usually adequate to dissolve or remove the hyaluronic acid dermal filler to achieve the patient’s desired results. This will be outlined in your personalised treatment plan during your consultation with a Skin Rejuvenate Cosmetic injector.

For optimal results, we recommend waiting at least 2 weeks after dissolving your dermal filler to replace it with a new filler. This allows any swelling to go down and ensures that the hyaluronidase does not dissolve the new filler.

The cost of Dermal Filler Dissolving treatment starts from $399. This can vary depending on the treatment area and the amount of product used to target concerns.
